What are cosmetic injectables?

Cosmetic injectables are injections, often designed for your face, that reduce wrinkles, lines, and other common signs of aging. Such injections relax facial muscles associated with smile, frown, and laugh lines, or add volume to sunken areas of your face or body. Becky has many years of experience perfecting patients’ anti-aging results without surgery or downtime.

What are the different types of cosmetic injectables?

The main cosmetic injectables available at Becky Does Botox include:

Botox®

Botox is a cosmetic injectable made of botulinum toxin type A. It relaxes muscles in your face that contribute to smile, laugh, and frown lines. This treatment diminishes lines and wrinkles and tightens treated skin, achieving a younger-looking appearance. 

Dermal fillers

Dermal fillers, such as Sculptra®, also reduce fine lines and wrinkles, but they work in a slightly different way. Fillers add volume to sunken areas of the skin to tighten it and improve facial contours. Dermal fillers also plump up your lips.

What are the benefits of cosmetic injectables?

Some of the benefits you can experience after receiving cosmetic injectables at Becky Does Botox include:

  • Younger-looking skin
  • Improved facial contours
  • Better facial symmetry
  • Fewer lines and wrinkles
  • Smoother, tighter skin
  • Healthier skin
  • Plumper lips
  • Reduced skin laxity
  • Aesthetically pleasing appearance

Cosmetic injectables take years off of your appearance without pain or surgery. These treatments are quick, making them excellent lunchtime procedures.

Are cosmetic injectables right for me?

To find out if you’re a candidate for cosmetic injectables at Becky Does Botox, Becky reviews your medical history and your beauty goals. She examines your skin and tailors a treatment plan that matches your desired outcome. You might receive Botox, Sculptra, other cosmetic injectables, or combinations of treatments to perfect your younger look.

What happens during cosmetic injections?

When receiving cosmetic injectables at Becky Does Botox, you relax in a comfortable, reclining chair. Becky numbs the treatment area to maximize comfort and gently injects a neurotoxin or fillers into specific areas beneath your skin. Each injection lasts just a minute or two, and there’s no downtime afterward.

What should I expect after receiving cosmetic injectables?

After you receive cosmetic injectables, you can resume normal activities immediately. However, expect some tenderness, swelling, and redness at the injection sites that usually go away within a day or two.

The effects of dermal fillers appear immediately, and the results of Botox often show up within a few days. Botox lasts about 3-4 months, while fillers may last 6-24 months or longer, depending on the type of filler you receive. Repeat cosmetic injectables spaced apart over time offer you long-lasting results.
